News   Pics! Mamie Gummer Leads Cast of Roundabout's Ugly Lies the Bone
 
Roundabout Theatre Company's Roundabout Underground world‐premiere production of Lindsey Ferrentino's Ugly Lies the Bone began previews Sept. 10 prior to an official opening Oct. 13 Off-Broadway at the Black Box Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.

Directed by Patricia McGregor, the production launches the ninth season of Roundabout Underground.

The cast features Karron Graves (Kacie), Mamie Gummer (Jess), Caitlin O'Connell (Voice/Their Mom), Chris Stack (Stevie) and Haynes Thigpen (Kelvin). Gummer made her New York stage debut in Roundabout’s 2005 production of Mr. Marmalade.

"Newly discharged soldier Jess (Gummer) has finally returned to her Florida hometown," according to press notes. "She brings with her not only vivid memories of her three tours in Afghanistan, but painful burns that have left her physically and emotionally scarred. Jess soon realizes that things at home have changed even more than she has. Through the use of virtual reality video game therapy, she builds a breathtaking new world where she can escape her pain. As Jess advances farther in the game, she begins to restore her relationships, her life and, slowly, herself."

Here's a look at the production:
